Good car

My wife came from a CRV which was her favorite car. She has grown to like this RDX even better. It is a bit more luxurious, rides extremely well, much easier to turn and the side warning signals are appreciated.


  • Ride and Handling:


  • Fuel Economy:
  • Cargo Space:

- J. Milton (Mickey) Ponder, 2017 Acura RDX

Drives like a car but it’s an SUV

feels safe and handles well, like a car- has a sport mode that’s never been used even though I drive it like I would a sedan


  • Cost to Maintain: it’s only required routine maintenance
  • Weather Versatility: she’s all wheel drive and I could take her to the mountains and feel safe in the winter
  • Fuel Economy: almost 25 miles to the gallon in the city


  • Dashboard: took a while to remember where the volume button was
